SKILLS COLLABORATION & PHILOSOPHY
This Tuesday afternoon, I spent about 2 hours preparing cookies with my peer Mariana Delgado. Why? Because we support and value education as a right and not a privilege. We chose to volunteer in the Kantaya bake sale, which consisted on baking varied cookies to sell in a box that granted education to 3 humble children. By doing this, we were not only helping a cause, but raising awareness to Peru's so-economical situation.
I am very fond of baking, but I had never experimented with the recipe we would be using. Due to this, our first batch of cookies was not the best, but we quickly modified the mixture to ensure better second results. Surely so, by the end our cookies looked great, and the iterations were all worth it.
As we were removing the cookies from the pan, Mariana noticed that they were cracking; I quickly told her we had to let them reach room temperature because if too hot, the dough would still be malleable. we waited a while, and then Mariana suggested to add some butter under the knife in order to make sure the cookies would be taken out smoothly. Her idea was smart, and by combining our two insights, we were able to achieve great outcomes.
